punch

Last week, I was approached by Trends Magazine to do a portrait for the cover of their magazine. The subject was the CEO of Punch International who ironically punched a union worker in the face a week earlier. This gave me some good ideas for the portrait but alas they wanted a traditional portrait and the deadline was only one day. So I came up with this:

J'adore ce rendu aquarellé très dense. J'aime beaucoup ton rendu habituel mais j'aime assez le fait que tu t'épanouisses aussi bien dans un rendu plus frais/jeté/ presque alla prima que sur qqchose de plus hyperstructuré/ plus illustratif. C'est impressionnant du coup. Mais du coup y a moyen de voir un croquis ou un rendu de ton idée initiale: La rejetée?
